Imagination Fountain’s Nighttime Finale Show @ Cascades Park

Please be sure to check the Cascades Park Facebook page and/or call 850.891.3816 to confirm there is not an interruption to this regularly scheduled weekly program.

 

Imagination Fountain - our kidsPerhaps the place where you’ll hear the most laughs and giggles is at Imagination Fountain. Located on the west side of the Prime Meridian Plaza, Imagination Fountain offers a fun, water-park atmosphere for children. The fountain, which features 73 jets, randomly shoots filtered water into the air, wetting even the most suspecting children. Once your little ones have had enough fun, they can change into dry clothes in the public changing rooms right next to the fountain area.

While the fountain offers a fun way to cool off in the daytime, it’s equally cool at night. After dark, Imagination Fountain is not only a water feature, it’s a show! Programmed to music and lights, the fountain performs a magnificent, repeating, seven-minute show beginning at dusk. Some of the hit songs featured in the show are “Celebrate” by Kool & The Gang and “Mess Around” by Ray Charles, who once lived in Tallahassee.

The nighttime finale show runs every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 8:00, 8:30 and 9:00pm.

Rules to Note

  • Fountain is open for play 8:30am – 8:00pm daily
  • No food or drink allowed in fountain
  • No animals allowed in fountain
  • No one allowed in fountain during nighttime finale show
